Who is this? Former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Paul Spoljaric What is this? An autographed insert card from the 1994 Signature Rookies set Where'd I get it? Purchased from a dealer at the local card show How much did it cost? 50 cents.
Why is this so special? I admit I purchased Spoljaric's card mostly because we share the same first name.
If I was paying more attention to baseball in the late 1990s, I might remember Spoljaric - he was a middle reliever for the Toronto Blue Jays and Seattle Mariners, and made a few appearances for the Kansas City Royals and Philadelphia Phillies. In total, he appeared in 195 major league games between 1994 and 2000.
Spoljaric represented Canada in the 2004 Olympics.
I think it's interesting that "Paul" is written so clearly, but Spoljaric's last name sort of devolves into a condensed scribble. Again, I cannot imagine signing 8000+ cards.
I'm only putting autograph-related links in this blogroll. However, if you have a blog or a collector site not specifically about autographs, but with an autograph page or an "autograph" label on your blog posts, I'll put that link here.
